Abstract

The article analyzes the large families’ life practices using the RLMS-HSE data. The characteristics of large families’ life practices as compared to other types families (with/without children) are identified. The specificity of participation of large families’ members in labor force is shown, the issue of “double employment” of women is raised. Ways of delegating responsibilities for child care, as well as the possibilities of receiving assistance and transfers are analyzed. There are no significant differences in the level of self-preserving behavior of large families (other than alcohol onsumption) compared with other types of families, however, the self-reported health level of large families’ members was higher. In addition, there is a higher level of subjective well-being against the background of lower objective income indicators.
